The Veluwe is a mainly forested region north of Arnhem, in the province of Gelderland in the Netherlands. Most of it is on higher ground - the highest point is about 110 m, a noteworthy elevation for such a flat country. The Veluwe is the best-known 'natural' region in the highly urbanised Netherlands and is a popular destination for Dutch tourists making day trips.
Where better to let your feet find the pedals again than De Hoge Veluwe National Park, a sprawling 13,590 âcres (5,500 hectares) of wilderness, coupled with an impressive 26 miles (42 km) of bike pats that branch out like arteries across the parkas varied and alluring landscapes. The forest and drift-sand that make up the landscape of the Hoge Veluwe can best be explored from the saddles of white bikes (witte fietsen) - the kind that you see at every corner in Amsterdam. They can be borrowed at three locations within the park. Prepare to get lost between the trees..."
